The Naperville Police Department has released a video of the moment a Chicago cop fatally shot a hatchet-wielding man who pulled up during an unrelated traffic stop.

Footage from the police officer's body-worn camera shows the officer pulling over a vehicle for driving past a stop sign on June 3.

The officer asks the driver for his license and insurance card and waits while he calls his mother for his insurance information.

At this point, another car pulls up and a man charges toward the officer while carrying a hatchet. 

The officer shouts, "who are you?" before firing six shots at the man.


He then calls for backup, who handcuff the man and take him away on a stretcher. Police said the man was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead, according to Fox32 Chicago.

The man was later identified as Edward C. Samaan, 28, of Naperville, the outlet reported, citing the DuPage County coroner's office.

The officer, a 22-year veteran of the department, was not injured in the incident, Fox32 said.

An independent investigation will be conducted into the incident by the DuPage County Metropolitan Emergency Response and Investigative Team and the DuPage County state's attorney's office, the outlet reported.
